.....No new stock was cut during the making of these boards…..
“Tis the season for gift giving and what better way to clean out the cut-off box than to make something useful and hopefully desirable at the same time from this repurposed wood. This proved to be more time consuming obviously than using preselected boards to make the projects from….I originally was just going to glue everything together and cut it into pieces from there but the multivariable lengths and thicknesses quickly changed my thought (or lack of ) process. I’m undecided at this time as to what edge and corner treatment to give the little one which is only 9/16” x 5”x 5.75”......I was going to use it as an accent strip in another board as it used to be 18” long , but some how it led me to the chopsaw and I guess that this is what it really wanted to be in the end ….LOL
Species used were : PurpleHeart , QSWO , Paduak , Ash , Maple , Cherry , Bubinga , Black Walnut , and will be finished with Mineral Oil .
Happy Holidays to all !!!
Thanks for looking , now get out to your shop and give those cut-offs a second life ! : )
ps: the two larger boards (also scrap) at the bottom of the pile are awaiting edge treatments and juice grooves and will be posted soon…..thanks
-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
